Glucosamine treats for dogs

There is so much discussion regarding the benefits of glucosamine for dogs.
Everyone knows that it is great for dogs with osteoporosis, hip and joint dysplasia and arthritis, but are you aware of the benefits of glucosamine in promoting healing?
Studies have indicated that glucosamine may be rate limiting for the body's hyaluronic acid synthesis and that the supplementation of glucosamine following surgery or trauma may increase hyaluronic acid production in the wound and encourage more rapid healing and diminish scarring.
Did you know that the two major building blocks for cartilage synthesis is Glucosamine and Chondroitin.

Glucosamine is responsible for the synthesis of hyaluronic acid and glycosaminoglycans within the joint.
Chondroitin, while being one of the major gylcosaminoglycans, also acts to inhibit degradative enzymes that promote the breakdown of cartilage.
These two important building blocks of cartilage in your dog break down with age.  The incidence of degenerative joint disease increases with your dog's natural aging process.
